Chadwicks in Old town Alexandria, Virginia
Based on a tip from a Twitter follower, we can confirm that Trae Lamond, longtime bartender/general manager of Chadwicks in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia is the new owner of the establishment. I spoke with several people since receiving the news and all said Mr. Lamond has been considered the defacto owner of the Old Town joint since longtime owner Tom Russo passed away.
